If wkd-srv runs with LANG=C (which is what happens in our images), ruby will default to US-ASCII as the default encoding.
OpenPGP Key uids should be UTF-8 strings, thus let's switch to UTF-8 as the default encoding.

For more background on the details from another project.
Keys imported were fetched from the SKS network.
